A smart transition towards Solar Thermal
Half of society’s overall energy usage is heat, and the industrial sector accounts for about 31% of the world’s total energy consumption. Today the largest portion of this energy consumption comes from coal and oil, and to meet sustainability goals, the share of renewable energy sources needs to increase rapidly. Solar thermal meet the heat demand and ensures energy security for industries, reducing CO2 emissions and fossil fuel dependency.
The world’s energy usage is rapidly rising as living standards increase for billions of people in the developing world. As more countries and companies fulfill their commitments to reducing carbon dioxide emissions, the share of renewable energy must increase to represent most of the world’s energy supply within a few decades.
The quest for development in new sources of energy has attracted significant investments over the past few years. The new European green deal will be leading the sustainable transition in Europe. To make this transition from costly fossil fuels to sustainable energy systems industrial heat needs to be carbon-free.
Solar collectors replace costly fuels
In the industry, energy-demanding processes that currently run on oil or gas will undergo fundamental efficiency measures. Solar collectors provide both heat and steam and directly replace costly fuel.
Solar heat from Absolicon solar collectors can be integrated at multiple points into the existing heating system and supply heat, steam, and cooling processes with the same system. The solar collector field is placed near the facilities and is easy to install and remount if the need for land usage changes.
Heat is half
We need electricity, heating, and transportation to run our society. Together they make up our total energy demand, and the largest part of it is the heat.
Half of the overall energy usage is heat. Electricity and transportation split the other half.
The industrial sector accounts for about 31% of the world’s total energy consumption, and Heat is used to make our everyday products, such as clothes, dairy products, drinks, and food. Industries generally rely on internal energy production, most typically steam boiler systems for heat production. Absolicon solar thermal solutions ensure energy security for industries, reducing CO2 emissions and fossil fuel dependency, and the heat can be stored when the sun is down.
The investment in Absolicon solar thermal is made competitive by local production, limiting transport costs, and adapting material choices to the conditions and supply of your local market. Our production partners located all over the world supply the market with T160 Solar collectors.
The collector price is optimized by its streamlined design that allows mass production in Absolicon semi-automated Production line, producing one collector every 6 minutes. Absolicon T160 technology is certified with Solar Keymark and Absolicon has been awarded the Solar Impulse label, for clean and competitive solutions, twice!
